The neck is dressed with an absolutely gorgeous 5A museum grade birdseye maple.  The frets are 100 mm wide and 50mm tall.  They are in between a 6100 and 6150, what they used to call "jumbo" in the early 80's.  It is a fat-neck, similar in size to a 1951 Fender Nocaster.   It has that nice, beefy feel. 

 

The body was cujstom painted with laquer pigment and Behlen Nitro Gloss.  The hardware is all gold plated, including the locking Gotoh tuners that are 1:21 ratio. This stabilizes the whole tuning mechanism.  The pickups are MVG Tele pickups.  The neck pickup is metered at 7.7K and the bridge pickup is metered at 8.1K.  These give you that bitey, belly, crispy, tele sound that I just love.
